Chris Pratt Got Ripped By Working Out For Months On End, Really Vigorously

Chris Pratt has revealed how he got into shape for Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World. Shockingly, it involves working out.

The 37-year-old actor worked with a trainer six days a week in the lead up to playing Peter Quill in the 2014 release of GotG, losing 60 pounds in six months.

"Six months no beer. #GOTG Kinda douchey to post this but my brother made me," Pratt wrote beside an Instagram post last July.

His training was a mixture of running, swimming, boxing, kickboxing and one triathlon. "Three or four hours a day of just consistent, ass-kicking hard work," he revealed to Men's Fitness.

"I was peeing all day long, every day," Pratt added, after a nutritionist had upped his caloric intake to 4,000 a day, as well as advising him to drink lots of water. "That part was a nightmare."

He opened up further to People Magazine, saying he, "actually lost weight by eating more food, but eating the right food, eating healthy foods, and so when I was done with the movie my body hadn't been in starvation mode.

"It wasn't like I was triggered to just gorge myself and get really fat again.

"[Now] it's something that I think I can maintain because I don't spend four hours in the gym each day. I do maybe one hour in the gym maybe four days a week, and that's it."

Pratt told Vulture: "I just like to gain weight and lose weight. It's a roller-coaster. I just want to do this. I want to touch God."

And with that, lads, I now have a new Tinder bio.
